BANGOR, Maine — State police say a body found in the woods likely is that of a 15-year-old Glenburn girl last seen more than a week ago.
Spokesman Steve McCausland says the body was found at about 9:30 p.m. Monday by the Maine Warden Service in an undisclosed wooded location. Recovery will begin at daylight Tuesday.
McCausland says the state medical examiner's office will determine if the remains are those of Nichole Cable. The girl's parents have been notified.
Cable's mother says her daughter was last seen when she went outside to see someone she'd met over the Internet. Maine law enforcement officials and hundreds of volunteers have been searching for her.
A news conference has scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Penobscot County Sheriff's Department in Bangor.
